Is a Surrender of Your Medical License Warranted?
Once the brutality of a Texas Medical Board (TMB) investigation starts, one may start to feel as though everything is spiraling out of control. You may be bombarded with calls at work and at home, find yourself anxious every time you check the mail, and constantly concerned that an investigator will show up, out of the blue, perhaps at the worst time possible. However, even under this extreme level of stress, surrender of a medical license is not warranted if an investigation is still pending – especially since it may be possible to mitigate in your favor.
Guilt or perceived guilt do not warrant surrender either. Instead, one should continue to fight the disciplinary action against them, right until the very end. After all, this is more than just your reputation on the line; it is also your livelihood.
